I think I'm going to throw in the towel. Algae has come back and the stems that were growing fine have started curling up on themselves. Simply put, I've been trying for a high-tech tank for close to two years and for whatever reason, it hasn't clicked with me, even despite a lot of the great input from the board. I get a lot of joy out of my two low-tech pico tanks, but this tank and the tank before it were constant sources of frustration. This is especially true since I started working from home 2.5 months ago, where I constantly see the tank.
I think I am going to strip the tank, drill an overflow and install a sump, and make it into an African cichlid tank. Thank you everyone.
